A Confession: I'm Eduwonkette

Eduwonkette_alexThis has gone on too long. For months now, I've been letting friends know that, in reality, I am Eduwonkette.  The time has finally come to step forward and reveal it to the world.  Yes, it's true.  Eduwonkette is an elaborate hoax, an alternate blogging identity created to let me focus on New York City schools and my love of statistics, as well as to help bolster the web traffic at EdWeek.org and live out my love of women's clothing (if only online).  Close observers had already figured this all out from our shared sense of humor, love of silly graphics, and pleasure at deflating bloggy know-it-alls (whomever they might be).  But I'm sick of being asked if I happen to know who "she" is by people with funny smiles on their faces.  I could tell they suspected, and it was making me really paranoid.  And I'm overcome with guilt at having deceived New York Sun reporter Elizabeth  Green about my identity when she started emailing me for this story.  She's me.  I'm her.  We're different versions of the same thing, sort of like Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert. Now you know.  Now, on to more important things.

I'm so glad I checked out your blog before asking you outright. I just read Sun piece and thought, "that must be alexander." Alas, I was right.

It's such a relief that it's out in the open now, A-Rus. Who else but you/me would photoshop eduwonk onto Britney, and you/me onto K-Fed?

But in all seriousness - if you need help picking out shoes to dress in drag at the next EWA conference, I'm your girl.

Russo would like to be Eduwonkette but he doesn't have the juevos (womb) to write like her.
